Broadcasting from the Boardroom - The latest trend in ProAV

Posted by Paul Richards on Jun 19, 2017 11:36:05 AM

Hello Pro AV & Broadcast Professionals!

Just getting back from InfoComm 2017, and a major trend appeared. Videos are being made inside traditional meetings spaces more than ever before. Not only are more rooms “video enabled” as we say in the industry, but every video conference, live streaming and webinar software includes a big red “record” button nested prominently inside the interface. That big red button is getting used more than ever, contributing to the staggering 300 hours of video being uploaded to YouTube every minute!

 We have all sat through a recorded webinar right? They are getting better, but the majority of recorded webinars are sub-par in comparison to polished videos viewers are becoming more and more accustomed to. I would guess the last recorded webinar you watched is something your co-workers would call “death by powerpoint”. It’s not uncommon to come across recordings on YouTube with poor audio and video quality BUT when you do come across a video that was helpful and well prepared… that’s when users start to click the “subscribe” button. This is where social network sharing and communities discussions can start to uplift your video content and take your content further.

Top Auto Tracking Cameras for Lecture Capture

Posted by Paul Richards on Mar 29, 2017 3:45:07 PM

Hello IT and AV Engineers!

I recently got a chance to test out some of the industries top auto tracking camera solutions. Last year at INFOCOMM we saw quite a few new auto-tracking cameras solutions from 1Beyond, HuddleCamHD, Vaddio and PTZOptics. We will get into each of these companies auto-tracking solutions in this blog and I have side by side footage for the HuddleCamHD SimplTrack and PTZOptics Perfect Track. 

Auto Tracking Cameras for Lecture Capture

The good news is that that auto-tracking cameras are finally here with some impressive performance. The HuddleCamHD Simpltrack pictured above has some amazing features for controlling the speed and sensistivity we test out in the video below. We also, did a very similar test with the PTZOptics Perfect. I have to say the HuddleCamHD Simpltrack has a much more feature rich interface for auto-tracking. The "Tracking Parameters" turned out to much more in-depth. While, I do love the simplicity of the Perfect Track system from PTZOptics (and the cameras) take a look at the PTZOptics Perfect Track interface below.
